A Legend in Animal Well Being- Dr. Temple Grandlin Talks Practical Animal Care and Handling

A Legend in Animal Well Being- Dr. Temple Grandlin Talks Practical Animal Care and Handling

There are a few people that seem larger than life in US Agriculture during the thirty five years I have been covering farming and ranching in the US. Three names that come to mind quickly in that regard are Dr. Earl Butz, Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh and Dr. Temple Grandlin. Dr. Grandlin will be at two cattle events that we are covering this week- and we wanted to preview those appearances with some of her comments to us earlier in 2010.

Dr. Grandlin was the leadoff speaker for the Symposium for Beef Cattle Welfare that was held on the campus of Kansas State University back in May- and she spoke of the need to keep pushing the standards of animal care and well being higher and higher to stay ahead of those that are critical of today's livestock producers- as well as others that handle Beef Cattle in the pipeline from the ranch to the folk.

Dr. Grandlin spoke of her experience with the general public and the general media as she has gone around the country helping promote the HBO produced movie of her life. She tells us that most people away from the farm or ranch have no idea of how animals are handled or treated- but they are hungry for knowledge. She adds that we have not done a good job of providing that knowledge and need to be proactive in getting more information out about the care given to livestock by almost everyone in the industry.

We feature some of her comments on today's beef Buzz- click on the Listen Bar below to hear these highlights- and you can click here to jump to a story we had on Dr. Grandlin earlier this year and hear our full conversation with her.

Dr. Grandlin is scheduled to speak at the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association Friday Morning General Session of their 2010 meeting in Midwest City- then she will be receiving a Lifestime Achievement Award from the National Cattlemen's Beef Association on Saturday morning during their Summer Cattle Conference in Denver. Click here for more details about the OCA Convention and be there if you can make it to hear Dr. Grandlin.
